“Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing,” Lewis shared on Friday. “I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch.”

Lewis has visited doctors at three different health institutes and the suspected culprit is Meniere’s disease, a disorder of the inner ear with symptoms including vertigo, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, and fullness in the ear.

The “Flip, Flop & Fly” artist “can’t perform until” his health improves, according to doctors, and must “cancel all future shows.”

“I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us,” Lewis wrote. “I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.”
